George Kambosos Jr beats Maxi Hughes

Former undisputed lightweight king George Kambosos Jr. (21-2, 10 KOs) returned with a twelve round majority decision over Maxi Hughes (29-4-1, 26 KOs) on Saturday night in an IBF world title eliminator at FireLake Arena in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Ugly fight that never got untracked. Scores were 114-114, 117-111, 115-113. Kambosos was a 4:1 favorite.

In the co-feature, Olympic silver medalist and lightweight Keyshawn Davis (9-0, 6 KOs) dominated former European champion Francesco Patera (28-4, 10 KOs) over ten rounds. Davis dropped Patera in round eight en route to a 100-89, 100-89, 99-90 unanimous decision.

Unbeaten welterweight Giovani Santillan (31-0, 16 KOs) got all he could handle with Erick Bone (27-7, 14 KOs) but got away with a ten round unanimous decision. Judges scored it 97-92, 98-92, 97-93 for Santillan in a close bout that could have gone either way.



In the main event, Tom Aspinall returns from a year-long injury layoff to face Marcin Tybura. Aspinall was 5-0 in the UFC before suffering a knee injury 15 seconds into his most recent fight against Curtis Blaydes, while Tybura has won seven of his past eight bouts.
